More About Harry Shearer

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Inside the creative mind of Harry Shearer is a little bit of everyone--including a profoundly overblown heavy metal bass player, the boss of a cartoon nuclear power plant, a cloying suburban neighbor, an unctuous television anchor, and Richard M. Nixon, among many others. Shearer is not a legendary schizophrenic. Rather, he's one of America's foremost humorists, observers, and chroniclers of contemporary lives. Whether he's playing a role in a major motion picture, writing a screenplay, creating a comedy television show, or performing on radio, it's his job to out both the humor and humanity that always, he believes, dwell within.

Harry Shearer was born in 1943.

Reviews - What do customers think about Not Enough Indians?

Worth it to me, but I don't know about you  Sep 14, 2008
I enjoy this book on more of a micro than a macro level. That is, the laughs are to be found more in isolated turns of phrase than in the story. There are many, many funny sentences (example: "Her physical appearance revealed a refreshing lack of vanity"), but the overall experience is less than profound.

There are a lot of characters, and at first I had trouble keeping track of them. Before you dive in, I strongly recommend that you study the major character profiles in the front and form a mental picture of each. If you don't familiarize yourself with these names beforehand, you may find it hard to tell whether the character being introduced is a major one. I recall thinking that with some of the lesser characters, it wasn't really necessary to give them names and a generic description would have been easier to keep straight.

Some readers will consider this book not worth the effort. On the other hand, because the jokes are consistently plentiful, a small random sample might be enough to help you decide whether you want to own the book or not.
Harry always amuses  Aug 21, 2007
The Bookschlepper reports: In an elongated skit from LeShow, Harry Shearer lampoons the Native American casinos, NPR, the federal government, upstate New York and Albany, lesbians, a Diapercon convention and the mob. The plot is predictable but the side comments are worth the price of admission.
So much potential...  Aug 15, 2007
What should have been a quick little read took me three weeks to get through. I was really looking forward to reading this book, as I love Harry's work with Spinal Tap, The Simpsons, etc. But I just couldn't get into it. Too many characters, not enough focus. It had it's moments, and I appreciated the satirical tone and several humorous passages. But overall I just can't recommend this book to anyone except the most diehard Shearer fans.
doesn't even deserve one star  Aug 6, 2007
I was intrigued by the premise and expected some wit woven into a fun-to-read satire that would leave me with some sense of social awareness or at least a sense of being glad I read it in the end. Instead, I was left with a sense that I wished someone had driven a spike through my ear rather than wasting those hours of my life in this mind-less twitter of a book. The only persons who would find this book of value are the Beavis & Butthead wanna-bes who can't help but laugh when they see the f-word in print. Otherwise, do yourself a favor: read anything else but this waste of printing!
Clever idea for a novel...  Jul 9, 2007
Although I liked the idea for the book, I was disappointed in the writing and the way the 'story was told.' There were not any characters I simply could not forget or felt strongly about. It was not a book I would recommend to friends as a 'must read.' DZ
